The TV presenter discussed her departure from the TV channel in a lengthy Facebook post, but who exactly is she?
Who is Megan Gray?

WLOX-TV presenter explains why she quit her job
In a lengthy Facebook post, Meggan explained why she quit WLOX-TV after working for the TV channel for 18 years.
The morning presenter quit her job after WLOX’s parent company Gray Television demanded that all of its employees get vaccinated.
“I am not vaccinated so I am no longer eligible for employment with Gray Television or any of their stations,” Meggan wrote in her post.
“I know there will be people who will not agree with me or who will not understand my reasons,” she continued.
“This is fully understood because it is a protected right that they enjoy. Moreover, it is a personal decision for every American; but in my opinion, a forced decision to choose between vaccination and an individual’s livelihood is a dangerous precedent.
Did WLOX-TV respond?
WLOX chief executive Rick Williams told the Sun Herald he couldn’t comment on a personnel issue.
Rick attached a statement from Gray Television regarding their vaccination requirement which was limited to “certain medical conditions and / or religious objections”.
Speaking on her last show, Meggan shared a message to viewers and said, “I have had a wonderful 18 year career here and I am so grateful for every moment.”
